    Question Retrieve network interface status

    Hola everybody!

    I'm writting an MFC VC++ 6.0 application and it needs to retrieve the network interface status.
    I mean, for example: When you first connect your laptop to a WiFi network you get an icon in system-tray whose tooltip sais "it is trying to get an IP address via DHCP".
    Later on you can read that it is actually "connected"; or that you have "limited connectivity", etc.
    These "getting IP address", "limited connectivity" or "connected" is what I mean when I say "network interface status" that I need to retrieve.

    Does anybody know a way to get this?

    Thank you very much,

    Ricardo Vazquez.

    There's probably something in the iphelper API for this (I haven't dug deep enought to check). See:


    Or check out an example here that shows a lot of what IPHelper API can do:
